muslim youth in the u.s. that we have seen in europe. are we in danger of proving al qaeda right? i'm a liberal progressive american muslim but when i see that bigotry against my faith, my very identity has become so common place in america that it is a wedge issue in the elections and i can barely control my anger. i can't imagine how the next generation of american muslim youth will react to provocations. what's behind this? >> part of it has to do with the controversy surrounding the islamic community center in lower manhattan. it is true that there are those that oppose the project because they do believe that it will disturb the sensitivities of some 9/11 victims, so i do want to remind everyone in this country we do not define our constitutional rights by how they disturb people's sensitivities. you only have to spend a few minutes at ground zero yesterday and to take in this international anti-muslim zealous that gathered together to spout the most vile racist bigotry to know that this is about something more. anti-muslim sentiment in this country is at unprecedented levels.

prominently in the mystery of that one terrible moment. >> he always had that spirit in him ha was useful and look at things and be curious and amazed by them. >> reporter: but what was before it happened, of course. and ultimately before, for emory, was the island of kauai where he grew up on world famous beaches. this is his little brother nigel. >> we did everything together. best friends. i always looked at him and said, i don't know what i'd do if i lost you. >> reporter: from the start, emory's family saw something special in him. and in his way with the waves. >> started with a little boogie board. then he kind of graduated to learn how to surf the inside reef and he'd start picking up waves a little bit. then a hurricane hit the island. >> reporter: in 1992 when emory was 9, hurricane iniki devastated kauai and devastated cindy, too. so no home, no job after the storm, she picked up her sons and left for california. >> i just had a focus of supporting my kids and then surviving. >> reporter: she leaned on churches, family, the red cross. >> my mom came out here with nothing, you k
